    Fatty liver disease affects a whopping 30% of the population. That's 30 out of every 100 people! And some estimates have it at 33%.

    And if you're overweight, it's even worse overweight people are extremely more likely than healthy weight individuals to develop this condition.

    In other words, you're not alone. Not by a long shot.

    Other fatty liver sufferers have reversed their condition, lost weight, and rediscovered their energy, using completely natural remedies. And that means you can, too!

    It means that you have fat deposits in your liver, most likely due to alcoholism or obesity.

    It is treated by treating whatever is causing it. If you are drinking more than three drinks a week, get help quitting. If you are obese, work on a weigh loss plan with a nutritionist.

    But ask your doctor what is causing it and what needs to be done. I'm just guessing based on the most likely causes without seeing your chart.

    I',m going to assume that since you did not mention drinking as a hobby, that you are not diagnosed with alcoholic fatty liver.

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is a term used to describe the accumulation of fat in the liver of people who drink little or no alcohol.

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is common and, for most people, causes no signs and symptoms and no complications. But in some people with nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, the fat that accumulates can cause inflammation and scarring in the liver. This more serious form of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is sometimes called nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. At its most severe, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can progress to liver failure.

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease usually causes no signs and symptoms. When it does, they may include:

    * Fatigue

    * Pain the upper right abdomen

    * Weight loss

    When to see a doctor

    Make an appointment with your doctor if you have persistent signs and symptoms.

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease occurs when your liver has trouble breaking down fats, causing fat to build up in your liver tissue. Doctors aren't sure what causes this. The wide range of diseases and conditions linked to nonalcoholic fatty liver disease is so diverse that it's difficult to pinpoint any one cause.

    Types of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease

    Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can take several forms — from harmless to life-threatening. Forms include:

    * Nonalcoholic fatty liver. It's not normal for fat to build up in your liver, but it won't necessarily hurt you. At its simplest form, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease can cause excess liver fat, but no complications. This condition is thought to be very common.

    * Nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. In a small number of people with fatty liver, the fat causes inflammation in the liver. This can impair the liver's ability to function and lead to complications.

    * Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease-associated cirrhosis. Liver inflammation leads to scarring of the liver tissue. With time, scarring can become so severe that the liver no longer functions adequately

    A wide range of diseases and conditions can increase your risk of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, including:

    * Certain medications

    * Gastric bypass surgery

    * High cholesterol

    * High levels of triglycerides in the blood

    * Malnutrition

    * Metabolic syndrome

    * Obesity

    * Rapid weight loss

    * Toxins and chemicals, such as pesticides

    * Type 2 diabetes

    * Wilson's disease

    No standard treatment for nonalcoholic fatty liver disease exists. Instead, doctors typically work to treat the risk factors that contribute to your liver disease. For instance, if you're obese, your doctor will help you to lose weigh through diet, exercise and, in some cases, medications and surgery. If a medication is causing your fatty liver disease, your doctor will try to switch you to a different medication.
